I have had my chemotherapy treatment and start my radiotherapy next week, 15 rounds. Has anyone else had so many rounds and how did you feel afterwards. Also I have gained about 2 stones in weight since I started treatment despite being very active and going to the gym twice a week and yoga! Is anyone else struggling with weight gain.

Thankyou xxx

  • Hi Cammie

    I had 25 rounds of radiotherapy as I had cancer is both my breasts.  I felt pretty tired after most of them and I did have some burning to my skin but they gave me plasters to put on and told me to moisturise my skin after each round of radiotherapy which I found helped.

    Wishing you the best of luck with radiotherapy.

    Best wishes
